Last year saw TGCG boost its store numbers by 10 as it acquired seven centres of the Garden & Leisure Group
, as well as the Cheddar, Lechdale
Brooks Nursery & Garden Centre was acquired from Ken and Gill Brooks. The pair said: "Over the years the Bude community has shown they are avid gardeners and we thank them and our employees for helping to create a loyal community of customers. I believe there will be even more products and experiences in store for them as a result of joining The Garden Centre Group."
Chief executive of TGCG, Kevin Bradshaw, said: "We are pleased to continue our growth with the addition of a centre with a strong and loyal customer base and an excellent reputation across a range of gardening-related products. The Brooks centre complements our estate well, and we look forward to offering garden club membership to all our new customers."
TGCG is the UK's largest group of garden centres and this latest acquisition brings the total number of centres it owns to 140.
